Saltburn Who’s Who

Carole Kellogg whose father was Mr Fred Woodrow, says that she vaguely remembers being present when this photograph was taken at the Dr. Barnardo’s Home in Saltburn.

Standing at the back: ??, ??, Mayor of Redcar (Alderman Thomas Alexander Dougall), Mr. F. Woodrow, Mr J. C. Pickering, ?? Head of Saltburn School,  Rev. Berriman (Emmanuel Church Saltburn).

Callum Duff tells us: ”This is the official photograph for the 1951 ‘Festival of Cleveland’ event held at The Dr Barnardo’s Home, ‘The Ridge’ at Saltburn. The home closed in 1969 and was demolished to make way for the cul-de-sac of Executive-style houses, also called The Ridge which now occupy the site.” Callum also advises: “I recently bought a colour cine film from the Barnardo’s archive which features the ‘Festival of Cleveland’ event and this photograph being taken. It forms part of a promotional film showing the work of the Barnardo’s charity in Saltburn and other homes in Yorkshire.”
